check out my profile if you want to see which are my favorites; but the most recent awesome movie that i saw was “The incredible shrinking man” it`s about a guy who starts shrinking, eventually reaching the size of a thumb and gets stuck in his basement and in an attempt to get some food he starts an epic battle with a tarantula (while he is still in his basement) and after he kills it he reaches satori, which is ultimate enlightenment. The movie ends with a beautiful monologue in which he recognizes his interconnectedness with the cosmos.

@seeker, a “may contain spoilers” would be helpful when giving away so much of the plot.

Inception. Incredible mind-bending movie about dreams, reality, and human nature. Simply a masterpiece. Has something for everyone.

@seeker, I have one clear cut favorite, and about 30 or so movies that are tied for #2 all time. Number one is the Shawshank Redemption. I remember sitting in a near empty theatre(it wasnt well recieved initially and didnt make much money at the box office), in shock and awe after it finished, and thinking to myself “this is going to be special forever”. 15 years and over 20 repeat viewings later, it still is.

There are so many that have come close to taking the top spot but never have…. requiem for a dream, Mr nobody, Gladiator, Wristcutters, Jeff who lives at home, The machinist, American Psycho, The clockwork Orange(I think if I watch this one a couple of more times, it may take over the number one spot on my list), Dr strangelove, City of God, Blade Runner…gosh I could go on forever, ive forgotten so many.

At the moment, only because I forgotten about most movies I have seen and never really categorized them by greatest to least, my favorite would probably be Che.

Che because it was non-fiction and it portrays a man that did everything for the people and not himself. The revolution was lead by the people, not the other way around. When they fought this way amazing things happened, and I mean amazing things!, because each and everyone of them knew exactly what they were fighting for. At times this movie brought me to tears. Cuba are the true rebels of imperial and consumerism. And it displayed America’s corruption beautifully while also expressing the spirituality of Cuba and what it means to be a true humanitarian and revolutionary.

To this day Cuba is second to Georgia in literacy rates per capita, 99.8%, which is only a stat, but I currently believe he succeeded at making the fairest nation at the time, for allowing the people to speak for themselves and equipping each and every individual with the ultimate weapon; Knowledge, while establishing an enormous amount of community within their country. Fuck the communist propaganda labels.

At least, this is what I have gotten from the film for I am not willing to completely base my judgements based on one source, which has lead me to further read about the Cuban revolution and Che’s work. And maybe one day, I will go to Cuba to see with my own eyes and build and even greater intuition of the people that are so hungry to live and be the ‘New Man’ of this modern day and age.

I am not for violence but what else could have been done to protect their homeland? A peaceful protest? Naw, he was lead by love to do what he did.

@seeker, a semi-spoiler notice would have been nice but it sounds like an awesome movie. I’ll definitely check it out sometime this week!

@hjgalaini, that’s an AWESOME movie! That’s one of my favorite Jack Nicholson films, right below The Shining of course.

@0negative, Inception is definitely in my top 5 movies of all time. It’s so ridiculous good! Haha. Most people don’t really understand how great it is though, I didn’t either until I watched this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ginQNMiRu2w&list=WLBD2C3DB7441DBDC4&index=16&feature=plpp_video
I highly recommend watching this if your a fan.

@yoinkie, Those all are movies I LOVE!! Haha. And A Clockwork Orange, There are no words for how great that movie is. I love how timeless it is and I can watch it a thousand times over and never get sick of it! That’s another big movie that’s in my top 5.

@kkylekittell24, that sounds like an amazing film! I’ll definitely check it out this week. I don’t know much about the conflict, but what better way to start learning about it than with an awesome film? Haha.

Matrix Trilogy

Across the Universe is a new suggestion, I downloaded it a couple days ago. Whats funny is I also downloaded wonderlust, a movie about a commune, the day before I stumbled upon this site, and jordan’s plan to change the world.

@superperfundo, It is a bit long, divided into two parts. It is on Netflix if you have that.

@napathy, Im reading into the wild right now! That man was a different dude to say the least, and that is why I love it! ~ Might be a little too enthusiastic with those two exclamation points, haha, but really though, it is a good book.

@superperfundo, it’s really hard to explain. The movie is a surreal trip which lets you reflect your whole life. The style is so unique, I can’t even find words to describe it. Just watch Mindgame, you won’t regret it. I recommend everyone on this site with an open mindset to see this movie :)

In Bruges, hands down.

Oh and I liked Motorcycle Diaries way more than Che, if you haven’t seen it make sure you do.

Inception, Zen, The Last Samurai, Elizabethtown. There’s many more.
Pretty much any movie where the character is confronted with some sort of adversity and comes out in a more awakened state.

I couldn’t pick a favorite really but I’ll give a few :)
The Darjeeling Limited , Garden State , Die Hard , LOTR’s , Star Wars , The Wind that Shakes the Barley , Boondock Saints , The Departed , Death at a Funeral (English Version) (great speech at the end) , Three Idiots , Midnight in Paris , Rushmore , The Royal Tenenbaums , The Good the Bad and the Ugly , The Way and last one 50/50. Wes Anderson’s probably my favorite director if anyone knows of any movies in his sort of style post ‘em up I’d appreciate it :) @wryjester, In Bruges is a good one alright :)

I just saw Chronicle. That was pretty good.

But, my favorite movie is P.S. I Love You.
Um. I’m a sucker for tear jerking romantic-comedies.

Donnie Darko is a close second. It’s so trippy…
